    Been coming to Ultimo for a few weeks now as I live not far from here and have heard decent things.
    Iced coffee has an interesting taste and is very good and strong.
    Iced latte is great but not strong
    Vanilla latte is tasty but not very hot, or strong

    Staff is average not overly excited but that's not going to keep you from going in to enjoy the nice calm atmosphere. Nice corner coffee spot with outdoor seating.

    I don't know man. Would it kill any of these baristas to smile? Like, I don't need you to be sickeningly sweet, and after many years of being a server myself, trust me, I understand you're busy! But maybe a hello? How's it going? Something more than a grunt or two and obvious displeasure that you have to be talking to customers at all? I love and embrace the whole 'hey-fuck-you-means-I-love-you' South Philly attitude, but the folks behind the counter here are just plain miserable.

    Don't get me wrong though, not *all* of them are! There's one barista girl with red hair and an angel face who's a total sweetheart! But in my handful of experiences here, most of the counter crew has been pretty rotten.

    Despite living like 300 feet from this place, I'll still walk far past Ultimo to get coffee elsewhere.

    Torn... My first love of Philly 's coffee culture nestled in the hipster and gentrified area of point breeze aka Newbold.

    My past rating of 5 star has been downgraded by one star... Not because of the coffee.. Which I still thoroughly enjoy and consider top 5 in the city.

    It really comes down to the coffee section itself. On the past 3 visits, I've noticed flies flying around. Of course this is bound to happen since they have garage door/windows, but it's not the greatest look when they serve pastries. I get it, I open the door for fresh air in my business too, and flies do come in, I make the effort to get rid of them though! The day I visited the doors were closed. Just a heads up if manger reads this!

    I noticed other reviews stating grumpy baristas. I will say I had them too but that never bothered me. I just figured that was a South Philly thing lol.

    Still love that they do pour over for their house brew after a certain hour.

    New seats outside. Inside seats are fine but gets busy at various hours!

    Coffee, tea, cider, and wifi! This feels like your favorite neighborhood coffee spot. Chill music playing, friendly people, and great service. I'm not a huge coffee drinker but people I know who do like coffee enjoy what they offer. I love tea and cider, this place has a solid selection of both.

    Unlike other coffee spots, this place has a good amount of seating on the inside, and when the weather is nice you can relax outside as well. For this visit, I went with a dirty chai. It looked good and tasted even better. I'll be back again soon. :-)

    I have been to this establishment on and off for years ever since they opened! This place has a chill staff and the vibes are pretty chill as well. They have a nice selection of beer that you can sit in and enjoy or take out. I am not a coffee drinker, but when I do have a cup, I normally get their vanilla latte . It's so good and the latte art is pretty nice too . Their hot chocolate is a good choice too ! I haven't had their pastries, but some of my friends have. They really like the apple turnovers and the croissants. This is a nice spot to do work or to hangout with some friends
